You've missed so much amazing news, such as the fact that Mama Ru's BFF and sidekick Michelle Visage will be joining her on the judging panel, alongside iconic chat show hosts Graham Norton and Alan Carr, who will be rotating as resident judges up until the final episode where they will both appear.
